Not really a new trait suggestion, but rather a possible amendment to a description for Neutralize Elements.

"Beginning on the next turn (i.e. the next post, not the post in which this attack was issued), all attack-like Elemental Traits may not be used by any combatant. That is, any Elemental Trait that either replaces your attack or adds on to your attack's damage may not be used."

I...don't think I know of any Elemental Trait that adds onto an attack's damage, unless you mean stuff like "partner with a pet of x Element and have all your stats boosted", ex. Tornado. The only other thing I could think of was moves like Miasma that lower your foe's stats, but those are already covered by "replaces your attack". What is this intended to mean?

I noticed that although we have mechanic (machines), technician (technology) and textile worker (fabrics etc.), we don't have a trait for pets who create other things (pottery, or furniture). I therefore suggest:

Craftsman - Social - This pet fashions items to be used or sold.

Parentheses would be used for qualifiers (carpenter, jewellery maker etc.)

Edit: Species Trait suggestion - The Sailfin paragon description states "They also possess thick blood which helps them heal faster should they lose a limb or two." I therefore suggest the Trait "Speedy Healer" be added to the Sailfin's species traits.

Not sure if anyone else wants to make input on this, but I talked with Kodai about this in the IRC; I think we should have traits that would solely benefit slower pets. As it stands, you basically always have the advantage if you move first. It's never good to be the slower one in a fight, and I would like to see some traits that will help the slower pets out.

Some examples. If I think of more I'll post them.

Accelerate- Battle//AP//Restricted: If this pet would normally move second (or anything other than first) in a battle, it can give itself a temporary speed boost to move first for 3 turns, even if other foes have Guerrilla Fighter or First Initiative. 7 AP to start?

Counter- Battle//Dependent: If this pet moves second (or anything other than first) in a battle and takes damage from a non-elemental attack, it reflects ? damage back at the attacker.

These aren't related to the idea above, they're just other traits I thought of.

Durable- Battle//Automatic: +2 Endurance and +2 Defense, goes up 1 every level tier

Swift Striker- Battle//Automatic: +2 Offense and +2 Speed, goes up 1 every level tier

Persistent Fighter- Battle//Dependent//Restricted: If this pet's attack misses, its next attack has a +10% chance to land, does not stack

Burn- Battle//AP//Fire: Inflicts a burn that does 1 damage for the next 3 turns. 6 AP to start? Number of turns that the burn lasts increases with each level tier.

Taser- Battle//AP//Electricity//Restricted: Basically an Electric version of Wingstorm.

Bodyguard- Battle//AP: Applicable only to double battles. If this pet's partner is attacked and this pet uses Bodyguard, this pet takes damage for its partner (the damage taken is calculated using this pet's stats, not its partner's). Bodyguard protects the partner only from attacks that land after Bodyguard is used. 6 AP to start.

If the description for Bodyguard is confusing, here's an example:
Enemy 1 uses Pyro and hits User's Pet 2.
User's Pet 1 uses Bodyguard.
Enemy 2 uses Puncture and hits User's Pet 2
User's Pet 2 uses regular attack.
User's Pet 1 protects its partner from Puncture but not from Pyro.

Avenger- Battle//Dependent//Restricted (?): Applicable only to double battles. If this pet's partner is knocked out, this pet gains +? to all stats.

Able Airman - Like Able Seaman, but applying to aircrafts.  The character has spent enough time training that they are comfortable with most air craft (like airplanes and blimps, or maybe even a spacecraft of some sort), and has consistently been a pilot, copilot, etc. on such a craft.
Implemented – Able Airman
Maybe I'm foolish, maybe I'm blind
Thinking I can see through this to see what's behind
Got no way to prove it, so maybe I'm lying
Take a look in the mirror, what do you see
Can you see it clearer, or are you deceived in what you believe?
Don't ask my opinion, don't ask me to lie
Then beg for forgiveness for making you cry
'cause I'm no prophet or Messiah
You should go looking somewhere higher

I'm only human, I make mistakes
I'm only human, I do what I can
I'm only human, that's all it takes to put the blame on me

Don't put the blame on me

"Human", Rag'n'Bone Man

I think if we used the term Pilot you could also cover a space craft... :l;; since well a sea man can be any of the crew. Where as some space crafts and air crafts are one or two person only. Although it would depend really. Cause a whole space ship may need another term. I don't really know if I am explaining my self correctly but a Pilot is someone who mans/controls a ship, aircraft of any kind, ect.... not sure... :l

A Pilot could control an air craft or space craft.

But you could also have a space trait that could make someone.... worthy of going in space ;3; sorry english not working...

Edit:
What I mean to say is just cause one is sea worthy, or don't get air sick or can go in space. Does not mean they can Pilot something :U;; If you get what I mean. I still think a Pilot is the best word for someone who can control an air craft or space craft.

Although something to make some one worthy of going in to space with out getting sick is something different all together...
Implemented – To Boldly Go

So, maybe have a Pilot or (Airman) trait and an Astronaut trait? To differentiate between them?

Glitched - Physical/Personality - This creature's internal mechanisms are somehow damaged, causing it to perform erratically.

Inherent Ability - Battle/No Element/Dependent - This creature has an ability that it can utilize with much less drain on its own energy. (Select an AP Battle Trait to be linked to this trait. Once per battle, the pet can perform that Battle Trait with no AP cost. This cannot be linked to Power Drain or Power Sap.) //Restricted
One more day before the storm!
At the barricades of freedom.
When our ranks begin to form
Will you take your place with me?

The time is now, the day is here!

One day to a new beginning
Every man will be a king
There's a new world for the winning

Do you hear the people sing?

Tomorrow we'll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store!
One more dawn
One more day
One day more!

Battle Trait ideas to support elemental attacks more since they seem to hardly get used compared to Lunge and so on.

Elemental Master - Battle (Restricted/Automatic) - Elemental attacks targetting more than one foe only need the AP cost of the single target spell (i.e. Windstorm costs the same as Aero).

Veteran Spellcaster - Battle (Restricted/Automatic) - All elemental attacks cost X AP less than they normally would.

Master Mage - Battle (Shrine/Automatic) - Bonus damage that gets normally only rolled for physical attacks gets rolled for elemental attacks as well.



I know my dreams are made of you
Of you and only for you
Your ocean pulls me under
Your voice tears me asunder
Love me before the last petal falls






However cold the wind and rain
I'll be there to ease your pain
However cruel the mirrors of sin
Remember beauty is found within

Copycat- Battle (Restricted/One Use)- This pet can imitate opponents' moves. When used, this trait is replaced with the last AP, Activate, One Hit, One Use, or Dependent trait that the opponent used. If the user already knows the trait that would be copied, then the trait used before that would be copied. For instance, on turn 2, the opponent uses Pyro, and on turn 3, the opponent uses Horrific Moan. If Copycat is used on turn 3 but the user already knows Horrific Moan, then Pyro would be copied. This lasts for the duration of the battle.

Trapsetter- Battle (Restricted/One Use)- This pet can set traps for its opponents. Upon use, the user declares a number from 1-10. On each turn, the opponent rolls an extra d10 to determine whether they land in the trap or not. If the number rolled is the number picked by the user, the opponent takes damage. Damage increases per level tier.

shocking skin/electrical hide
This creatures body is surrounded by a strong electrical field, contact with it can cause damage and possibly paralysis to an opponent.

pets that could possibly have this trait: Sparquill, Voltage colored pets, Staigovald

Burning hide/molten body
This creatures body can cause burns if an opponent comes in contact with it either through chemicals, fire or magma/lava.

pets that could possibly have this trait: Candle Shinzo and lubshi, Hearth Quiksylph, magma creepers, Inferno Barghest

Slime body/sticky hide
This creatures body has a sticky substance on it that can stick to an opponent, slowing it down and possibly reduce damage taken from attacks (it could also immobilize an opponent depending on the differences in size the amount it slows down an opponent also depends on size)

pets that could possibly have this trait: Oil Barghest

Not exactly a new trait suggestion, but...Flyby Attack and Wing Buffet do the exact same thing. So you might want to tweak one or just remove one entirely xD;

??? - Diet - This creature’s diet consists of life energies/the life force's of other creatures.

To clarify, it would be creatures that have some means of absorbing the life energy, the life force that all living things supposedly have, from other creatures in order to survive. This is not referring to the soul, blood, or magical energies.

I have two characters that are examples of this, one being my vampire character, Lie, whom doesn't drink blood, but must be intimate with a person in order to steal life energy from them in order to sustain herself. Or my fiendish character, Chevalier, that makes pacts with other beings so that he may absorb their life energy in order to survive, which has caused the deaths of many mortals in the past, from draining away all of their life force.

Pact Maker - Magic - Able to create magical pacts with other beings that usually benefit both parties in some way.

Pact Holder - Magic - A being that has made a magical pact with another being.

Familiar - Magic  (Social?)  - A magically bound or created that being that serves another mystical being such as a witch, fairy, vampire, etc.

Species trait suggestion:

The Radill is described as: "Believed to be good luck to farmers everywhere, Radill are adept at digging tunnels underground and moving around fast due to their sleek physique. Their vast tunnel work can lead for miles underground and their scales help dirt slide off their bodies so they can stay clean most of the time. Many times, to absorb sunlight, you will their their green hair frills sticking out from the dirt."

This implies they have plant-like qualities; I therefore suggest their diet be changed from omnivore to Omnivore/Photosynthesis, as pets can have two diets. I also suggest that they receive Classification Nightmare as a species trait, following the same logic.


EDIT:

Hulk Smash: This creature possesses so much strength, they find it difficult to control, and may accidentally cause harm to others or inanimate objects if angered or excited.
Other suggested names: Oops, Grrraaghh, Who Put That There
